Alien Al and Dizzy Dragon by Priddy Books-with alien and dragon crafts

Both my boys love these books:  Alien Al and Dizzy Dragon by Priddy Books.  My oldest now 3yr started out with the Alien Al book at age 1yr and loved it and still enjoys it.  My youngest son now 1yr has really started to get to enjoy Alien Al.  We just added the Dizzy Dragon and both boys love it too.  There are 2 more books in this series and my oldest told me today we had to get those too! He said mommy and daddy needed their own book now that he and little brother had their own.  Love the reasoning behind this,lol. These books have a cute story but it is the touch and feel as well as the lights and sound they have that grab the attention of my kids.  We love books over here as many families do and always enjoy finding new ones to add to our collection.  What are some of your favorites?

He really enjoyed breathing fire from the dragon!
